Recent advancements in diffusion-based models have demonstrated significant success in generating images from text. However, video editing models have not yet reached the same level of visual quality and user control. To address this, we introduce RAVE, a zero-shot video editing method that leverages pre-trained text-to-image diffusion models without additional training. RAVE takes an input video and a text prompt to produce high-quality videos while preserving the original motion and semantic structure. It employs a novel noise shuffling strategy, leveraging spatio-temporal interactions between frames, to produce temporally consistent videos faster than existing methods. It is also efficient in terms of memory requirements, allowing it to handle longer videos. RAVE is capable of a wide range of edits, from local attribute modifications to shape transformations. In order to demonstrate the versatility of RAVE, we create a comprehensive video evaluation dataset ranging from object-focused scenes to complex human activities like dancing and typing, and dynamic scenes featuring swimming fish and boats. Our qualitative and quantitative experiments highlight the effectiveness of RAVE in diverse video editing scenarios compared to existing methods.



Our process begins by performing a DDIM inversion with the pre-trained T2I model and condition extraction with an off-the-shelf condition preprocessor applied to the input video ($V_K$). These conditions are subsequently input into ControlNet. In the RAVE video editing process, diffusion denoising is performed for T timesteps using condition grids ($C_L$), latent grids ($G_L^t$), and the target text prompt as input for ControlNet. Random shuffling is applied to the latent grids ($G_L^t$) and condition grids ($C_L$) at each denoising step. After T timesteps, the latent grids are rearranged, and the final output video ($V_K^*$) is obtained.
